Production

In 2001, Stephen Norrington announced that he had agreed to direct a film based on the Marvel Comics character Shang-Chi, describing his envision for it to be "a real honest-to-goodness martial arts film, rather than a film that simply has martial arts in it."[3]

In 2004, Ang Lee announced that he would be a producer on the film. In 2005, Stan Lee announced that he would executive produce the film for DreamWorks with Yuen Woo-ping set to direct from a screenplay by Bruce McKenna,[4] while Avi Arad stated that he believed a PG-13 adaptation of the character was possible.[5]

In 2006, Marvel Studios announced financing to produce the film, with the film set to be distributed by Paramount Pictures.[6]

On December 3, 2018, it was announced that Marvel Studios had hired David Callaham to write the screenplay which would modernize the character to avoid stereotypes and that Marvel was looking at a number of Asian and Asian-American directors to helm the film, while also intending for it to be Marvel's first superhero film with an Asian protagonist.[2]

On March 13, 2019, it was announced that Destin Daniel Cretton would direct the film.[1]
